Lovely to meet you all! My name's Ashley Rodriguez, but you can call me Lotus! I'm silly, ridiculous, artistic, weird, and a bit shy at first meeting! I don't yet know you all and I'm still saving for a tail but I love you all, my merfamily! Hope you'll have me in your pod! <3 :)

Thank you!! I'm saving for a silicon with competitor. I heard that they're best! I wanted a Merbella tail but they're so expensive! And I keep seeing stories about people waiting over a year for their tail! I think I'll be going with FinFolk. <3

I think Merbella and FinFolk are about the same price, but I love FinFolk for all their amazing options... Sooo many fluke styles, scale types, funky extra fins, interesting upgrades , etc. Not to mention that Abby and Bryn are fab to work with. :). Of course Merbella tails are fabulous, too, and I looove Raven's striking paint jobs!

Merbella tails look amazing!! I love FinFolk, too!!! Have you heard anything about MerNation? I've also been looking through their stuff and it all looks pretty great! Plus, I've heard nothing but good things so far about their customer service!

We sent our designs to MerNation and they replied that they love our designs, will work with us, and gave us a quote so we're flipping out. Haha

That's wonderful! Yes, we decided to go with MerNation because Merbella is also swamped with orders!

Merbellas is about the same price as Mernations silicone tails. Are you talking about fabric tails?

Either way, congrats. :)

I always lean toward doing it the right way the first time even if it is more expensive/time consuming. :D
